After several months of training, I'm happy to report that I just finished running/walking my first race in a time of 1 hour and 11 minutes! When I did run a race several yeas ago (2004), I didn't train for the race at all so when I ran 2K, I finished third from last in 29 minutes. Today me and Den participated in the 3rd annual Conquer the Bridge race in San Pedro, California which was actually a 5.3 mile run/walk. I alternated between walking and running and although I had planned to finish within 1:10, I am proud of my finish time today (1:11) as well as my pace during the run (13:31) and am definitely making it my goal to finish within an hour next year.Den also walked the course and finished in 1 hour and 30 minutes. We're both really proud of our achievements today.
